Abstract

The objectives of this research were: (1) To compare the chemotactic responses of two pathogenic campylobacters, C. fetus ssp. fetus and C. jejuni, with a nonpathogenic campylobacter, C. sputorum ssp. bubulus, qualitatively by the Hard Agar Plug method and quantitatively by the capillary tube method. (2) To isolate and characterize Fla-, Mot-, or Che- mutants from one or more of the three campylobacter species being tested.
